New Holland's Knickerbocker is the largest taproom in the state! This impressive taproom also has an impressive list of ales (many of which you can only get in the taproom). New Holland originally opened in 1997 in Holland, MI this location opened in September of 2016. New Holland is one of the largest craft breweries in Michigan, with beers like Dragon's Milk (bourbon-barrel aged stout) you will see why.
Harmony Hall (same owners as Harmony Brewing Co.) is a funky & eccentric brewery that is inspired by the great German beer halls. This locally owned brewery has award winning wood-fired pizzas , soups, salads and sandwiches... Just like the beer, food is made in house. Bring or buy a growler, you can only buy their awesome beers on location. They have various lagers, IPA's, porters/stouts and fruity/citrusy to list a few.
Atwater Brewery originally opened in 1997 in the Rivertown district of Detroit. We will be trying out their great craft beers on tap inside the historic Rowe Building, downtown Grand Rapids. They are well known for their lagers, Vanilla Java Porter and Dirty Blonde. This location brews on-site several beers you cannot get elsewhere. On the tour you will get to choose any 3 samples of your liking from their extensive beer menu.
